Local Roubaix

The Liverpool Roubaix is a tough Paris-Roubaix-style sportive featuring fourteen unpaved/cobbled sectors and a finish on the spectacular new velodrome at Knowsley. There’s both the original 100km route plus an epic new 100-mile option (160km) version.

I did a 100km joining up local riding and a few bits of cobbled sections that don’t form part of the published routes. Man, it was muddy. Probably a better ride for bit summer, not end of November, but then it wouldn’t have been a grim and gritty Flanders-esque outing…

Bike needed a proper clean after that!
